the courage of our questions

carl sagan remains a constant source of inspiration.  here he is teaching a class of young students about the cosmos.   it's interesting to remember back at how lessons and talks were given before the digital days of power point presentations. 

near the end of this video, carl says "there are in fact 100 billion galaxies, each of which contain something like a 100 billion stars....we find that we live on an insignificant planet, of a humdrum star, lost in a galaxy, tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe, in which there are far more galaxies than people."  

"we make our world significant by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers."
